5 Hair Accessories You Can Wear Anywhere

Whether you have long hair that is wavy or straight or short hair that is curled or coiffed, you can add some style and excitement to your hairstyles without sacrificing your budgets. You don’t have to keep your hair curled or cut in the latest styles to look hot. All you need are these five hair accessories to complete your looks.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are one hair accessory that have a dual function. When you’re out in the sun, put on some big and bold sunglasses to keep the sun’s glare from blinding your eyes. When you step inside of a building, slide them up on top of your head to pull your hair off your beautiful face.

Bobby Pins

Bobby pins are not just available as plain pins. Now you can find them in different colors and designs. Bobby pins are great hair accessories to use to twist and hold your hairstyles in place. You can choose from bobby pins that are colored to match your hair color or bright colors to add some boldness to your look. No matter what, they are one hair accessory you should never leave home without.

Ponytail Holders

Ponytail holders are great to have for those times when you simply want to keep your hair away from your face so you can walk, swim, clean, or engage in any activity where your hair might get in the way.

Headbands

Headbands are items that you should always have in your purse and beach bag. You can use them to let your hair flow freely without getting in your face and eyes. They come in many colors, materials and styles so you can accent your outfits and swimsuits with ease.

Clips

If you like to swim or jog, keep your hair in place and looking great with hair clips. They come in different colors and designs to make it easy for you to match or compliment your geometric style tankini and workout clothes.

Keep all of your hair accessories in one place by storing them inside of a small plastic bag inside of your purse or beach bag. When you need or want them, you can find them easily without having to empty out the contents of your bag.

Easy Summer Hair Tips

Warmer weather means more time in the sun, and the last thing we want to worry about is our hair. You might think your swimsuit is what people notice first about your summer look but in truth it’s actually your hair.  So you want to make sure your hair looks great. But what’s the number one enemy of great hairstyles? Getting wet! And when you’re at the pool or by the beach that’s pretty hard to do so effortless, easy-going and PRETTY is the goal, so here are a few Summer hair trends and tips to try to keep your lush locks looking their best in the heat!

Get a Trim

First things first: head to the salon for a trim. Whether you’re chopping off dead ends, thinning out bulk, or trying out a pixie, getting a trim at the beginning of the season will start your Summer off right.

Hydrate!

Hair needs moisture to stay healthy and not feel like straw. Stock up on both a daily leave-in conditioner and a deep-conditioning mask that you can use weekly to repair any heat damage. For a quick at-home smoothing treatment, combine 2 egg yolks + half of a mashed up avocado and leave on hair for 15 minutes. Wash and condition as usual-hair will be super soft! (Yes it works!)

Speaking of heat, try to limit frying your hair right now. Protecting your hair from UV Rays is hard enough, so blow-drying and flat-ironing it every day might be overkill. Try braiding your hair at night to create beachy waves, or using velcro rollers while in the shower to mimic a loose blowout. If you must have straight hair, visit your stylist for a blowout and ask for tips on how to extend it.

Join the Braid Brigade

Braids are another protective hairstyle to try in the summer. Milkmaid braids are still popular, and one of the easiest styles to wear (next to the ponytail). Part hair in the middle, add styling cream and plait hair. Cross the plaits over your head (mimicking a headband) and pin down with bobby-pins. Voila! This is a sweet look to wear to the beach, but can also be worn in place of an elaborate updo for summer weddings.

Be a Bunhead

If your hair is really long but you don’t feel like messing with it, pull it up into a messy bun. Let a few wisps fall down to keep the look from being severe, or add a thin headband for a little feminine flare. While I wouldn’t recommend this in a traditional office setting, when done right, a high bun can be quite chic-just look at all of the street-style blogs for inspiration!

Hats are always super cute in the summer.

Do the Pony

When all else fails, slap in some frizz-fighting serum and smooth hair into a pony tail. Fishtail the end or tease it a bit at the crown for a look that’s low maintenance but still high in style.

Hide it in a Hat

That’s right, just hide it. Summer hats are a great way to keep cool in the hot heat of the sun. Apart from protecting your hair and face from UV radiation they also look super cute with pretty much any bathing suit. Go for a hip wide brimmed style like the Coyote Straw Hat by Seafolly.
